Hawaii Officially Proclaims Children of Fallen Patriots Day

News Release from FallenPatriots.org

Honolulu, HI – The Governor of Hawaii, David Ige, has officially proclaimed May 13th as Children of Fallen Patriots Day. This patriotic day is a special time to pause and remember the sacrifice of our fallen patriots as well the children they have left behind. The loss of life and its effect on families throughout the country inspired the creation of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (Fallen Patriots).

Over 97% of those killed in action are men, often leaving behind a family who suffer through the ultimate sacrifice. The foundation provides college scholarships to military children who have lost a parent in active military service, including combat casualties, military training accidents, service-related illnesses, suicide and other duty-related deaths as ruled by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Hawaii’s long-standing support for the children of our fallen patriots will help expand awareness about the immense need to ensure a future education for surviving military children. Fallen Patriots hopes to locate the 20,000 surviving military children who still could use their help on Children of Fallen Patriots Day.

Surviving military scholars’ stories, and how they came to work with Fallen Patriots, may begin with tragedy, but each one of their scholars is a shining example of how the support of honoring legacy results in inspiring success. Scholars have attended and graduated from schools all over the country with the financial help of Fallen Patriots, view map here.

The success of Fallen Patriots can be told by countless surviving scholars, but the need for financial support continues to grow. Nearly 20,000 children from all across America are still in need of future assistance. Fallen Patriots continues to work to honor those who are no longer with us by giving to those they left behind.
